I must confess I had a different card all set to share with you today and when I sat down to type my post at 11:45pm I saw that it's Friday (it's been a week folks. A WEEK. Sick kiddos, migraines, tendinitis, taxes, vendor issues, you name it!). And since Friday means a new Viva la Verve sketch I took a quick peek at the sketch, then dashed to my stamp corner to make a card lickety split. I now see that I didn't take a long enough glance, since I ended up putting my stripes the wrong direction, but hey... another 15 minute card is done! And that means I have another coffee creation to share with you later.
The making of:
The coffee mug is from the Delightful & Delicious set. I stamped it in black, then colored with Copic markers and added a little white gel pen highlight. Next I added some washi tape strips to designer paper to ground my Coffee Word Die cuts in pear pizzazz, so saffron and groovy guava. I added a couple rounded corners, some black matting and finished off with ribbon from the Polka Dot Basics Ribbon Collection. Easy peasy!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Our extremely delayed February restocking shipment is scheduled to arrive tomorrow, so if you've been waiting on a Verve set that said it would be back in stock in February, the wait is almost over. Check back on Saturday and they'll hopefully be here and part of our 20% off all stamps sale!
